Had a great time here, lots to see and do. Although the times for the showings of animals and feeding times were a bit lengthy in between so we missed them or were a bit fed up waiting. Apart from that we had a great time. Clean zoo, well looked after animals, what more do you want?! And the foot... More

Just spent the whole day at Blackpool Zoo for the first time. Amazing Day Out! Couldn't fault the Zoo on any aspect. Very well laid out and organised. The Programme gives all the times of feeding and displays and times of interest of the animals. Everywhere was clean and very natural. There were plenty of places to sit. We took... More

Great place to visit with or without children, lots to do for all ages. Educational and informative but not preaching! Regular talks by the keepers are great fun with an ideal level of info and entertainment. Sea lion show was fantastic, showing how the various "tricks"were mimicking natural behaviours. All the favourite animals are there together with some more unusual,... More

The animals were fantastic and there was lots to see and do for reasonable prices. It was lovely to see free roaming animals in parts of the zoo too. Parking was however, ridiculous. At first, the car park wardens were advising people out of the car park and attraction onto a double yellow lined street and main road so people... More

Thank you for your comments. Sorry about the car parking, but our own car park has been completely full on a couple of occasions recently and we've had to send some of our visitors to the Model Village down the road for parking. Our own staff did fill every corner of our car park, but we haven't had anyone blocked... More

If you are looking for a place to entertain and educate your children then Blackpool Zoo has it all! The conservation projects and animal talks are fun and interactive, you can get closer to the animals and even take your own picnic! It's a really reasonably priced day out that the whole family can enjoy! My 14 year old son... More

We arranged a visit here and only thought it would be a few hours at most. We were wrong. A whole day of enjoyment. The enclosures were very good sized where animals don't look distressed, which adds value for enjoyment. The zoo is very educational with talks on animals, shows and feeding the animals and many activities to keep the... More
